Walk, run, swim... get to 5K Your Way to benefit Vision Resource Center
Join our 5K!
To celebrate Blindness Awareness Month and the strength and resiliency of people with visual impairments, we’re excited to announce our first-ever Vision Resource Center virtual “5K Your Way” event.
Run, walk, skip, bike, or dance YOUR WAY with us starting Sunday, October 11 through Saturday, October 17. We are asking everyone to walk at least 10 steps blindfolded (with assistance for safety) to understand the VRC mission.
What is a virtual 5K (3.1 miles)?
This will be a 5K that you complete with your family. You choose the time and place (following local social distancing guidelines of course).
What is a White Cane Day?
Thursday, October 15 is White Cane Day. The white cane is a symbol of independence for people with visual impairments. You are welcomed to do your walk around the VRC trail and Zoom with any 5k walkers doing the event simultaneously.
When will the virtual 5K take place?
We recognize that everyone has different schedules, so the event will begin on Sunday, October 11 and can be completed through Saturday, October 17. We will celebrate everyone’s achievements by posting pictures, quotes, and stories sent in by you! Please share your 5K Your Way journey by emailing email@example.com or posting on social media and tagging Vision Resource Center.
What will I receive for participating?
Ticket price includes a t-shirt, blindfold, and wristband that will be mailed to participants. Register by October 8th to guarantee delivery of items before the end of the event week.
